SQL SERVER – Query to Find Column From All Tables in a Database

I’ve run this query thousands of times and thought I would post it. I have a script the will search all objects in a database for a string including jobs and ssis packages, I will post that one soon.


USE YourDatabase
SELECT t.name AS table_name,
SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS schema_name,
c.name AS column_name
FROM sys.tables AS t
WHERE c.name LIKE '%Search String%'
ORDER BY schema_name, table_name;

Bonn Appetit!
